Director George C. Wolfe (Nights in Rodanthe) is reportedly set to direct Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby) in You’re Not You.  The film centers on a woman (Swank) suffering from a fatal illness and her relationship with a young caregiver.  We previously reported that Jeremy Renner was the top choice to star opposite Swank, but there has been no update on that front.  The drama is based on the first novel by Michelle Wildgen, which was first adapted by Shana Feste (Country Strong) and then by Jordan Roberts, who worked on Dolphin Tale.  Hit the jump for more on You’re Not You.

Variety reports youre-not-you-book-coverthat Wolfe will sit the director’s chair for You’re Not You, his first such assignment since 2008’s Nights in Rodanthe.  The article also goes on to say that producers are currently searching for actresses to play the part of the 23-year-old caregiver.  Check out the description from the Wildgen book below (via Amazon):

Bec is adrift. It’s the summer before her junior year in college. She’s sleeping with a married professor, losing interest in her classes, and equivocating about her career. She takes a job caring for Kate, a thirty-six-year-old woman who has been immobilized by ALS.

As it turns out, before the disease Kate was a stylish and commanding woman, an advertising executive and an accomplished chef. Now, as she and Bec spend long days together, Bec begins to absorb Kate’s sophistication and her sensuality, cooking for her, sharing her secrets, and gradually beginning to live her own life with a boldness informed by Kate’s influence. The more intense her commitment to Kate, the further Bec strays from the complacency of her college life. And when Kate’s marriage veers into dangerous territory, Bec will have to choose between the values of her old life and the allure of an entirely new one.
